Got my Varsity Red VI's for $110 shipped which is about all they're worth. It's insane how a poorly constructed retro can resell for so much, but if people have it to drop, that's on them.
the scenes from that gif are from the movie "hot rod"...
Good looks fam.
I laugh at the price of those 2010 Flints too since I was able to cop a pair of 05's for under 250 shipped. Another one knocked off the list. Can't wait for the Breds to drop so that people will start getting rid of their 2004's.
If you're patient enough, you can get shoes at a reasonable price. I have yet to drop some of the prices that people are willing to drop on shoes, but sneakers aren't my only hobby/expense. I know what I am willing to/not willing to spend. The upside is that I don't have to have fire sales of my entire collection like some due to living above my means. Also, if I want a pair bad enough, I'll negotiate a price with the seller that's more than fair and do the deal through Paypal which helps them out. If you catch auctions early and get a good offer in, it helps you to avoid the urge to compete with a bunch of people in the final seconds.
Worn shoes is another thing all together...I've sold a pair of SBs that were worn, but I listed them and described them as such despite the fact that I could've passed them off like some of these shady sellers do, "only tried on and worn around the house for an hour." They just had too much going on for my current style so I no longer wanted them. I wouldn't personally purchase worn shoes though as there are people who take care of their shoes the way that I do and have shoes that can pass for DS after several wears.
